How to Maintain a Healthy Smile
The main goal of general dentistry is to prevent any dental issues from developing and keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible. At East Hills Dental Associates, we believe this can be achieved by doing two things: visiting our office every six months for regular checkups and abiding by a strict at-home oral care routine.
At your bi-annual dentist appointment, your teeth, mouth and gums will be examined by your dentist. They may take dental x-rays as well to get a better picture of your teeth. This is important to your oral health because it allows us to intercept any dental problems in the beginning stages. Then we can provide treatment as soon as possible. If issues such as gum disease or tooth decay are left untreated, they will progress and get worse. Also, at each visit, your teeth will be cleaned by a registered and experienced dental hygienist. They will remove excess plaque and tartar that is missed with daily tooth brushing and flossing.
Dr. Sousa and his staff also believe in educating patients about proper at-home oral care. We advise all patients to brush their teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, and avoid excess sugar. Maintaining these daily habits along with visiting our Sea Cliff, NY area dentist office every six months will help prevent oral diseases and tooth decay.
